Do you have a mustang seat?

I'm looking for a picture of a 950 with a mustang seat with the driver backrest. I want to buy one but i'd like to see what it llooks like on the bike first. Surprisingly google images didn't have many options... Thanks in advance.

Honestly, Id TRY to find a bike with a Mustang seat on it period. Any bike. See if you like it. I conldnt stand mine. Go to dealers and look through the used bikes if possible. I bought mine used and sold it then modded my own seat.

I have Vintage Mustang saddles on my 2011 VStar 650 Custom. The Mustang saddles are so superior to factory saddles there is no comparison. I have great lower back support and I have a bad lower back. Go to the Mustang web sight they have many pictures of there saddles on various bikes. Over the years I have had various saddles on a number of bikes you just can't beat Mustang saddles for build quality and comfort.

I have a09 950with a mustang wide touring seat & cobra sissybar. I Had one on my old 2001 650 classic custom. My butt would go numb after about 20+mi no issues on 200+mi rides now ,wife loves it to. her seat was alittle better on the 650 though.

I've got the solo seat on mine. Comfort is more important than looks. I got mine upholstered anyway

if your butt likes the stock seat stay with it . or test ride a bike with one before shelling out 400+ponies. if you only go on short rides it may not be worth it. I thought I was just getting old till I read review I could've rote.

Peachey there are many motorcycle saddle makers. If you are still undecided maybe you can ask around your local motorcycle community. I am sure you will find someone with a mustang saddle. Sit on one and you will understand why they get such positive reviews. You tube has a mustang factory tour on it another way to get more info. Good luck.
